Brethren Witness Book
Are you a new member of The Brethren Church? Are you teaching a class about The Brethren Church? Would you simply like to understand more about our denomination?

Redesigned, with discussions at the end of each chapter, our new Brethren Witness book encapsulates the history and the story of The Brethren Church in an easy-to-read and contemporary fashion.

Great for groups and for personal study, this book is written on the occasion of what might be called an awakening in the tribe of God’s people called The Brethren Church.

Fresh vision and shifting culture have given themselves to fresh strategies which are producing kingdom fruit in ways and in places that we cannot anticipate nor contain. Our recourse, then, is to follow along in obedience where Jesus leads and prepare ourselves to be of use in his mission.

What is Love and Respect?
We believe love best motivates a woman and respect most powerfully motivates a man. Research reveals that during marital conflict a husband most often reacts unlovingly when feeling disrespected, and a wife reacts disrespectfully when feeling unloved. We asked 7,000 people the question, "When you are in a conflict with your spouse or significant other, do you feel unloved or disrespected?" 83% of the men said "disrespected" and 72% of the women said "unloved." Though we all need love and respect equally, the felt need differs during conflict, and this difference is as different as pink is from blue!

Wild at Heart
Every man was once a boy, and every little boy has dreams, big dreams, dreams of being the hero, of beating the bad guys, of doing daring feats and rescuing the damsel in distress. Every little girl has dreams, too: of being rescued by her prince and swept up into a great adventure, knowing that she is the beauty.

But what happens to those dreams when we grow up? Walk into most churches, have a look around, and ask yourself: What is a Christian man? Without listening to what is said, look at what you find there. Most Christian men are…bored.

John Eldredge revises and updates his bestselling, renowned Christian classic, Wild at Heart, and in it invites men to recover their masculine heart, defined in the image of a passionate God. And he invites women to discover the secret of a man’s soul and to delight in the strength and wildness men were created to offer.
